Are you working on a nonfiction book?
I coach nonfiction authors as they write books that serve their readers and make a positive impact on the world.
If you’re committed to the personal and professional transformation that comes through publishing a book, let’s see if we can work together.
Nonfiction Book Coaching
From clarifying your idea to figuring out a structure and getting the draft down, a book is a long journey. Having a guide makes the journey smoother, and ideally more fun.
Depending on your needs, coaching can include:
- Refining the book idea/marketing research
- Book proposal strategy and support
- Making a research plan
- Guidance and support as you draft (you’ll be doing the writing)
- Line editing of the manuscript (improving the reading experience)
- Making the transition to publication and promotion
Developmental Editing for Nonfiction
Have a manuscript in the works? I’ll offer feedback on structure, the authorial voice, pacing, and content so you can create a book that really serves your readers. We can work from a full or partial draft.
Here are a few of my clients’ books:
Anne Janzer is a phenomenal writing coach. Working with her to complete my first book was an amazing experience, as she coached me through every step of the process, from formalizing my book idea to creating an outline, then rough draft, all the way through to the final, polished manuscript and beyond. As a first-time author, Anne also guided me through the process of publishing, including connecting me to key resources, support, and everything else I needed to make my book successful. To top it all off, Anne is just a wonderful person whom I genuinely enjoyed working with, as well as a respected industry expert and truly gifted writer and author herself.”

I hired Anne to review my book proposal — and Wow, was I grateful to have found her! She gave clear, unflinching feedback (the most valuable kind) with a sound understanding of industry standards. Her package of edits-plus-consultation was far more helpful than I even hoped. She is thoroughly professional, while also being warm and encouraging for my career as a writer. Highly Recommend!!Vanessa Osage
